Pre Season starts on Thursday August 8, with 5 games on tap. And I don’t care. I’m waiting for the season opener on September 5th. Baltimore @ Denver. Pre Season is pretend football. Granted they don’t want to hurt themselves before they really get going and it counts towards something but it’s really not that intense. The booth men just practice their shtick, the big men practice running their plays, the babes on the sidelines shine their boots, shake their pompoms, and try to stay in step and look extra excited when the camera man shoots up their butts. When you’re really ready to play, I’m right here ready to watch.
